McKinney – According to the Collin County Sheriff’s Department, two people have died from injuries sustained in a three-vehicle crash on SH 380 Monday afternoon in McKinney. The wreck involved a small tanker truck, an SUV and a pickup, happened near CR 330. DPS investigators are on the scene. Vehicles and debris littered the road and one deceased victim was still on scene late in the afternoon. Significant debris will cause lengthy delays in the area. The road will be closed indefinitely.
The small tanker truck was resting on its side and appeared to have heavy front end damage as well. Hoses and equipment from that truck were scattered nearby. A grey SUV which appeared to have rolled over several times had most of its windows shattered. A white pick-up truck also was heavily damaged from what appeared to be a very violent impact. The top of the pick-up truck appeared to have been removed either by the accident or by first responders attempting rescue. There is no official word yet which vehicles the deceased were riding in.
This is a developing story.
The Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex has been plagued over the last few days with violent and deadly crashes. This weekend, a teenager from Hurst was killed in a weather related accident. Two Everman teens were killed in a roll-over crash overnight. Now today, we have a violent accident between two large SUV’s and a tanker truck. Two people have been confirmed dead as a result of this accident, and those who survived are likely to have severe injuries. The level of destruction to the vehicles and the extensive debris on the roadway make it clear that this accident was caused either driver error or a defective vehicle. Either way, someone is at fault for the accident, because lets be honest, there are no “accidents” when you are in a car. People are negligent and that causes other people to get hurt. It is not clear who is at fault in this accident.
Here at Guest and Gray, we encourage families of victims to think about contacting a licensed personal injury attorney to handle their claims. The personal injury claims process is difficult and chalk full of red tape. On top of that, victim’s and their families are trying to recover physically from their injuries and financially after missing time from work. The family of deceased victims are dealing with medical bills (yes, they still come) and dealing with Estate matters, dealing with the loss of a loved one. The personal injury process can be too much for people who have minor injuries. For those who have lost loved ones, or are dealing with debilitating injuries, it is overwhelming.
If you find yourself in a similar situation, call an attorney. Consultations with a personal injury attorney are typically free (our here at Guest and Gray are always free and we offer consultations at our Dallas, Rockwall and Forney offices and we are even able to come to you if you cannot come to us!)
